SENIORS

TRANSCRIPTS

LCL uses an electronic transcript service called Parchment to send transcripts. Students will use Parchment to request for their high school transcript to be sent to any college or university as well as NCAA or other institutions/individuals.

It is fast and easy and allows current students and alumni to make transcript requests at any time online.

To get started, go to www.parchment.com, and click on Create an Account on the top right of the screen on a computer or on your phone scroll to the bottom of the page. You are a Learner.  Enter "Lake Country Lutheran High School" where it prompts "Enter the name of the school that has your transcript", and fill in all profile information required. Be sure to use your full given name (i.e. Matthew instead of Matt). Once your profile is complete you will see a place to select “order transcripts” and you can enter your college or other receiver at that time. If you have any questions about this process please contact Mrs. Jakubowski in the Office. 

Please remember that once your account is set up you will need to remember your username and password to access it at any point in the future.

 
DUAL CREDIT/COLLEGE TRANSCRIPTS
If you have taken a dual credit class or any other class through an outside institution your transcript from those institutions will need to be sent when applying to colleges as well. In order to make those requests you will need to contact the institution's registrar's office directly. As dual credit classes through Concordia University Nebraska and Concordia University Wisconsin are common to our students, the transcript release information for those two institutions are included below:
 

Concordia University, Nebraska (Spanish):  http://transcripts.cune.edu

LCL dual-credit students do not need a username or password for CUNE. Select the first option: transcript customers without a current CUNE username/password. On the following page click the gray box to create an account and follow the steps to request a transcript.

Topics covered during this meeting include the College Application Timeline, Standardized Testing, College Visits, College Discernment, Paying for College, and Financial Aid. The PowerPoint presentation outlined at the meeting can be found here. Additionally, a quick reference guide to the College Application Timeline can be found by linking here. If you have any specific questions about the process, please contact Diane Jakubowski, School Counselor, in the School Counseling Office.
 
SPRING SEMESTER JUNIOR MEETINGS
All juniors meet with Mrs. Jakubowski after they have registered and requested classes for their senior year. Topics of these meetings with students include planning for college/career, how to apply to college, and how to search for scholarship. Students will meet with Mrs. Jakubowski during the school day and are scheduled from February through April. Parents are welcome and encouraged to join these meetings if possible.
 
STANDARDIZED TESTING 
Juniors should begin preparation for taking the ACT and/or SAT tests during this school year. It is suggested that students take these tests two or three times before their senior year. Check the "ACT/SAT" link for more information. The PSAT is also offered in October of Junior year.
 
Check out the School Counseling Page for information on area college fairs so you can start looking!

OTHER THINGS TO CONSIDER:
  1.  Consider taking more challenging courses if you are doing well
  2.  Continue involvement in activities (school and volunteer service) - consider leadership roles
  3.  Visit colleges - create a list of questions and plan a list of schools to visit

SOPHOMORES

You are now in your 2nd year of high school, no longer the youngest in the building. Sophomore year is great time to set new goals and continue to challenge yourself academically! You should be thinking about where you want to go after high school; college, military, an apprenticeship? Think about what your strengths are and where you need to make improvements. When you see the college representatives visiting the school, stop over, find out what they are about. It's never too early to think about your next steps!

"I teach music and art because I love hearing and seeing students' expressiveness coming out through their musical performances or artwork. It's just an awesome bonus that I'm able to do what I love to do and integrate my faith into this aspect of my life. Seeing the Holy Spirit working in and through faculty and students is amazing, and seeing the love of Christ shine when students sing is not really a job, but an awesome privilege!"
